VERSE 01: “Over There” we hear of heroes,/Who’ve been fighting for you and me./Ev’ry where we see our soldiers,/Decorated for bravery./Tho’ we are proud of them you bet,/Don’t let that make us all forget:
CHORUS: On the sea, we’ve other heroes, too,/On the sea, our sailor boys in blue;/With their swift Destroyers,/”Submarine Annoyers,”/They’ve been tried and true: God bless them!/Now this war is over, “Over There,”/We’ll have to take our hats right off to Jack;/Tho’ the Army is the clover,/’Twas the Navy took them over, and the Navy will bring them back!
VERSE 02: “Over There” our fleet is lying,/Safely guarding the troubled sea./Ev’ry where our flag is flying,/As a symbol of Victory./We knew our boys were bound to win,/But why not count the Navy in?
